CARGO: Shipntrak could boost haulier revenue
Vehicle tracking company Simplytrak are aiming to increase haulier revenue while reducing costs, with the launch of a new online freight exchange facility.
Shipntrak connects shippers and hauliers on an auction-style platform, enabling users to match cargo with available space.
It is designed to allow both parties to work together efficiently, reducing costs on an unprecedented scale.
An easy-to-use online system, shipntrak provides an additional revenue stream for hauliers by enabling empty vehicles to be registered and loads sourced for otherwise unprofitable return legs.
It also reduces costs for shippers and creates a competitive environment to source hauliers.
The system works using various filters, with relevant loads matched to suitable vehicles based on categories including location, route, vehicle type and dates.
Shipntrak also enables real-time tracking of the cargo from pickup to delivery without fitting any additional vehicle hardware, a first for online freight exchanges.
Installation of the shipntrak app on any GPS-enabled Android or iOS device assists hauliers in vehicle management as well as providing an accurate delivery time to the receiver.
The system is now live and running a beta version, which is cost and subscription-free.
Yorkshire-based Simplytrak provide GPS vehicle tracking, asset tracking and generator monitoring systems in 37 countries on five continents.
